BUSINESS

THE POWER

For many
communal leaders,
the best time
to meet is the
crack of
dawn.

KIMBERLY LIFTON

Staff Writer

lue Cross - Blue
Shield Chief Financial Officer Robert Naftaly
works best over dry whole wheat toast,
orange juice and a cup of coffee.
Naftaly, a former chairman of the Allied
Jewish Campaign and a member of several
Jewish Welfare Federation committees, is
an early morning riser, often starting his
day at 7 a.m. with a business breakfast
meeting for the Jewish community or Blue
Cross.
Two mornings a week, he meets with Blue
Cross executives at the company's
downtown dining room. The other mornings
are open for community meetings, fre-
quently at the Big Boy restaurant at Maple
and Telegraph, Denny's at 12 Mile and
Telegraph and any other convenient loca-
tion.
Naftaly is not alone. Those who
brainstorm during the early weekday morn-
ings say breakfast is the best time to con-
duct business for the busy men and women
